Barrel Hitch American Whiskey

Barrel Hitch American Whiskey is an award-winning small batch, oak barrel craft spirit from Eastside Distilling on Portland, Oregon's Distillery Row.


This toast-worthy whiskey proves that not all American whiskies are created equal. What’s more tempting on the tongue than brown sugar and vanilla? Buttery oak and a silky body?

Barrel Hitch American Whiskey is the brainchild of Eastside Master Distiller Mel Heim and Chief Branding Officer Carrie Earles. Lucky for us, the two were inspired by their shared passion for craft spirits to join creative forces. Bottled at 80 proof, Barrel Hitch hits the mark with a smooth body and unique notes of toasted oak, green apple and vanilla – the happy result of a meticulous blending process. This warmly approachable, award-winning spirit is a shining example of how science and art can form a harmonious union that redefines the standard. And that’s lucky for you.

Clean grain with subtle earthy, grassy notes. Covers entire palate with a comforting spice similar to cardamom. The oak opens with dessert tannins like vanilla and lends the subtlety of honeycomb. The flavor takes a pleasant turn toward dry, cured oak and warm caramel. This is wonderfully balanced sipping whiskey that is low octane and truly original.
— Mel Heim, Master Distiller
